Global Problem, Unique Solution

Global Problem, Unique Solution

The Challenge

According to the World Food Programme:

 

  • Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five - 3.1 million children each year.
  • 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry, with 23 million in Africa alone.

 

With millions of children dying each year from causes related to malnutrition, it is apparent that existing humanitarian efforts are not adequate to address this pressing global problem.

 

The Solution

The Nourish the Children initiative is Nu Skin’s solution to provide a consistent supply of nourishing food to the world’s most needy children. It enables Nu Skin's sales leaders and customers to contribute to a critical humanitarian need on an ongoing basis. By applying business principles and making the purchase of VitaMeal commissionable, it yields a program that is more likely to be sustainable. Many relief efforts are provided on a one-off basis or through limited-time contracts, while the Nourish the Children initiative has provided a framework to maintain a consistent level of food on a sustainable basis since 2002.

The primary charity partner for Nourish the Children is Feed The Children, one of the largest international charities in the United States, which specializes in distributing millions of pounds of food each year to families in more than 60 countries. This charity partner distributes the donated VitaMeal at NO ADDITIONAL COSTS and provides regular reports documenting the receipt of food by those in need.

By PURCHASING & DONATING PRODUCT RATHER THAN CASH, donors know exactly how their contribution is being used and can be assured that their donation is making a difference in the lives of children. In some countries, donors receive a receipt for tax purposes from the charity partner for their in-kind donation of VitaMeal.*
 

* This is an in-kind not a cash donation. Furthermore, your donation may be subject to additional reporting requirements under the Internal Revenue Code. Please consult your tax advisor regarding the deductibility for your donations and any additional reporting requirements.
